Top Reasons to Use Your Dental Benefits Before the Year is Up!

Top Reasons to Use Your Dental Benefits Before the Year is Up!

Have you used your dental benefits for the year 2018? It may be in your best interest to book an appointment with your West Kelowna dentist before the end of the year.

At New Look Dental, Dr. Kevin Andersen and his team will take time to understand your dental needs and work with you to find the best dental procedure before your dental benefits expire.

In an effort to help you get the most out of your dental benefits, we’ve compiled the top reasons to use your dental benefits before the year is up. 

Save Money on Your Dental Procedures

The majority of dental insurance plans will restart when the clock strikes midnight on December 31st. Using your dental benefits before the year ends will save you a significant amount of money.

Dental insurance companies bank on earning money from patients who never use their insurance benefits. Most dental health insurance plans provide coverage up to a certain dollar amount annually. Insurance companies aren’t going to encourage customers to use the maximum benefits, and most patients are too busy to determine the remaining amount. We recommend taking the time and checking to see what benefits you have remaining before year end. If you require some assistance, contact our team at New Look Dental office and we will be happy to assist you in obtaining this information.

Treat Dental Issues Before They Worsen

Delaying dental treatments will often lead to more expensive treatments, especially if they’re left for an extended period. Using your dental benefits now will prevent you from potential complications, tooth pain or expensive procedures.  

If you have any coverage left this year, call New Look Dental to schedule an appointment. We can take care of any cavities and other minor issues before they become bigger and require more expensive and invasive dental procedures.

Maximize Monthly Premiums

Do you require any dental procedures and have unused benefits? Use them up before the end of the year. Minimize your out-of-pocket expenses and maximize your dental benefits before the year ends at New Look Dental in West Kelowna. Dental insurance plans typically charge you a monthly premium.

They also typically have a yearly maximum for dental benefits and a monthly premium. Every dental benefits company will have a different maximum, so contact New Look Dental or your dental benefits company to find out if you’ve used all of your dental benefits. Once the new year rolls around, you’ll lose your remaining balance. 

Predeterminations & Dental Procedures

Booking any extensive dental procedures that require multiple visits before the new year may save you hundreds of dollars. Why? Dental insurance plans require us to send predetermination requests to your dental insurance company before we begin. 

Delaying dental issues often results in more expensive and extensive treatments. Using your dental benefits now will prevent you from potential complications, tooth pain or expensive procedures.

If you require any extensive dental procedures that involve multiple visits and haven’t hit your annual maximum, book an appointment at New Look Dental today.

The sooner we send your predetermination request, the sooner you can begin your dental treatments.

Call New Look Dental at 250-768-7671 to set up your appointment today in West Kelowna before your dental benefits expire. We’re always happy to accept new patients.
